My children have enjoyed visiting Ranworth church since they were quite young. It’s a beautiful building, with a lot of history of course, but it’s the tower that is the big attraction. Stairs and a ladder, and amazing views from the top. We were blessed...More
Visited St Helen parish church at Ranworth, Norfolk this afternoon - what an amazing experience and find. The rood screen with its 15th century religious paintings was absolutely stunning and very much worth visiting.
I visited (with a friend) Ranworth, last Thursday (August 23rd), and enjoyed a very pleasant and enjoyable afternoon, first of all, we climbed to the top of the Church (St Helen's) Tower, the steps (and two ladders) weren't easy, and we climbed slowly, but well...More
Everyone mentions the climb up the tower, but I'm fit and my little leggies were shaking all afternoon. I think there's 89 steps, but in a tight, narrow spiral, so you should keep to the outside where they are wider. Then you reach two metal...More

I'm sorry but I can't say for sure - it depends on how many volunteers are available. Why don't you visit picturesque Ranworth itself, visiting the tea room at the back of the church first. If this tea room isn't open it is a short walk from the Church to the Granary (not far from the Maltsters pub, and by the Broad) -where you can get teas and coffees at most times of the day.
